Why use Linear Browser Component (LBC) ?
Web browser has become synonym with the internet and World Wide Web. Nothing can be accessed on the internet without a web browser application e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera etc. With the passage of time web browser became essential part of many software and a strong need developed to integrate web browser functionality into other applications.
Different vendors started producing independent web browser components to be integrated into other applications as required.
A problem emerged from the fact that every web browser component follows a particular set of rules to interpret the formation of markup contents.
The work presented here is about the development of a new web browser component named Linear Browser Component (LBC). The new functionality of linear browsing provided in this component is based on the similar functionality presented in NotJustBrowsing® .
This component (LBC) with additional features is to be produced around well established browser components i.e., Trident, Gecko, WebKit.
